It is a debt we owe the purity of religion to show that it is at variance with that law which warrants slavery! Give me liberty or give me death
"I don't know what weakness may come over me, but I don't believe I shall ever deny my lord and master, Jesus Christ and I should deny him if I denied my principles against slavery."
"I don't know what weakness may come over me, but I don't believe I shall ever deny my lord and master, Jesus Christ and I should deny him if I denied my principles against slavery."
I tremble for my country when I remember that God is just and that his justice cannot sleep forever : Revolution is among possible events : the Almighty has no attribute which would side with us in such a struggle
Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor : Constitution of Virginia
One hour of American slavery is fraught with more misery than ages of that which we rose in rebellion to oppose
All men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights of which, when they enter into a state of society, They cannot by any compact deprive or divest their posterity! Namely the enjoyment of life and liberty
Yes whether on the scaffold high or in the battle's van, the fittest place for man to die is where he dies for man.
Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor : Constitution of Virginia
I don't know as I can better serve the cause I love so well than to die for it
What is life or rest to me so long as I have a commission direct from God Almighty to act against slavery
Thus saith the lord: Ye have not hearken'd unto me in proclaiming liberty
"I would never have drawn my sword in the cause of America if I could have conceived that thereby I was founding a land of slavery!"
"Your late purchase of an estate with a view of emancipating the slaves on it is a generous and noble proof of your humanity! Would to God a like spirit might diffuse itself generally into the minds of the people of this country."
Shall freedom or slavery triumph : Let Massachusetts speak!
All men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights of which, when they enter into a state of society, hey cannot by any compact deprive or divest their posterity! Namely the enjoyment of life and liberty
Remember them that are in bonds as bound with them.
